 An outstanding true story!"Rescue the Captors" details the 142 day ordeal Russell Stendal experienced in a remote area of Colombia, South America in 1983. This is an astonishing story of his kidnapping and ultimate release. In subsequent years other kidnappings in Colombia have impacted the efforts of Gospel ministry throughout the world.Rescue the Captors was a book that was very hard to put down. an honest book so I got some inside  into his life that showed me God uses sinners!Read this in one sitting; writing is average, but easy to follow story line. Good book for a rainy day. I will recommend it to others . would be great for a church library!

Read this then watch the movie and listen to the sound track!" I really enjoyed the book."I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for some insight into life on the mission field as well as an interesting real-life adventure. The book is best but the others are good too. I have passed this on to others so they can learn about serving Christ!This is a very inspiring book.  This is a very inspiring bookcid:image001.jpg@01CF4CCA.91C734D0 Reviewed for this company.

About the Author

Russell Stendal was born in Minneapolis and raised on the mission field in Colombia, South America. He became a missionary jungle pilot at age nineteen. Almost ten years later he was kidnapped in 1983 by Marxist rebels and held hostage for five months. His book, Rescue the Captors, relates his experience, including how God worked in the hearts of the rebels. 

Russell has written many other books, produced videos, and edited two Bible translations, the Spanish Reina-Valera 2000 and the Jubilee Bible in English. 
Russell heads up the work of Colombia Para Cristo which operates 12 radio stations involving over 100 staff and coworkers and covering much of Latin America with the Gospel. A thriving underground church has developed in remote jungle areas of Colombia. New high gain antennas are now beaming the Gospel message deep into areas of deepening crisis across the borders of Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru and Brazil as well as throughout Colombia.
